What can you do with FlashVote?
Good survey data makes everyone’s job easier. But professional surveys are a ton of work for governments. From drafting questions to collecting input to calculating and reporting results, they take months of staff time and calendar time (plus tens of thousands of dollars for consultants).
FlashVote combines expert consulting and patent-pending technology into an automated scientific survey service for governments. No more guessing what citizens want or think. No more speculation and disagreements among officials. FlashVote is effortless for staff and fun for citizens. We’ve even made data analysis so simple that anyone can do it. Goodbye cross-tabulations, hello dropdown menus.
You’re not getting the engagement numbers you want. Public trust is suffering as a result. About 70% of local governments say they don’t have sufficient staff, knowledge and financial resources to do public engagement at all. This is a tragedy for everyone.
FlashVote has cracked the code for getting citizens engaged. And we’ve made it into a simple and affordable service for governments. Participation is so easy and fun for citizens that they will routinely give you input, by the hundreds or thousands. How often will citizens answer FlashVote surveys? Here’s what they told us after using the service:
You can do a few surveys to a few dozen surveys each year with your citizens. You’ll get great input from people you’ve never heard from. As you engage your quiet and busy majorities, you’ll build trust with your whole community.
Think of the money and staff time that is wasted because of misinformation in your community. If you’re like most governments, its one of the main complaints you have. You’d love better informed citizens.
FlashVote customers use our “Did You Know _____?” questions to inform citizens and measure how informed they are, all in one simple step. From service tips to upcoming events, citizens get the information they need in a way that also helps them learn and remember it.
Governments with performance data do a better job for their citizens. They also uncover little problems or mistakes early, before they blow up into expensive messes. Too bad its always been really hard to get the data that you need.
Now its ridiculously easy. Whether you want annual satisfaction metrics or open-ended suggestions, FlashVote can be set up so you never have to lift a finger. The helpful data you want will be collected and reported automatically. You’ll always have the information you need to make your citizens happier.
